CHP was called out to Placer Road around 4:15 a.m. this morning for a report of a car that crashed into a utility pole. Authorities have closed Placer Road between Olney Park Drive and Plateau Circle due to power lines being in the roadway. PG&E officials say power was knocked out to roughly 500 people, but that number has been reduced to 127. CHP officials say it could be another four to five hours before the road is re-opened and power is restored. Drivers are reportedly being detoured to Swasey Drive. CHP also says that the driver fled the scene and no other cars were involved.
